Stubben saddle? [Pic heavy]

As some of you may know, I am interested in getting a used Stubben Dressage saddle I found online. I got some more pictures of it, does it look like a good saddle?

Stubbens are good saddles. Some people don't like them due to the hard seats. I like them because I can feel the horse and I get placed in a good position. They last forever and you don't come out of them easily.

This particular saddle looks very nice. Not a lot of scratches or dings, no cracks in the leather, solid billets, flocking isn't lumpy (but you need to find out if it's hard. Hard = expensive reflock job). The tree looks straight as far as I can tell from the pics. It looks very nice.

No matter how nice the saddle is, it doesn't matter unless it fits your horse. This is St Croix, isn't it? They have a good trial policy. Give it a try, or send them your wither-tracing first.

Yes, I've been emailing St. Croix and I was asking them if I could possibly get a longer trial period than 3 days, I was asking for about a week or so.
